  1. I am researching the following families:
    All are listed as Indo-Briton or Native on their various birth certificates.
    The first “Native” woman listed in my ancestry is Natcharama Maken my 6th great grandmother and Mootahma “Mary” Wheatley my 5th great grandmother. My English ancestors were with the Madras European Regiment.

    1. Hello, Nacharama was my 6 times grandmother ,and Mary Maken my 5 times grandmother .I have been looking to find out more about them and particularly Peter Maken ,not sure of his nationality ?Do you have any information .?

      1. Hello Jennifer, just saw your message. Mary (Mootahma) Maken married Leonard Wheatley. Leonard was from Lancaster, England, he was in the HEIC Army. I am descended from their daughter Elizabeth Wheatley, who married John Page And then William Simmonds of the 1st Madras European Regiment. I am descended from William Simmonds and Elizabeth through their daughter Caroline who married Stephen Pincott of the 1st Madras Fusiliers.

      2. As for Peter Maken I have no further information other than he had 3 daughters with Natcharama, they were, Mary, Sally and Ann. Maken is a Dutch, Irish and English name. I have found no records about him and where he is from.

  2. Hello, I am researching my family in India. Names are mainly Wilcox, Lynn, Slator, Freeman. The family go back to 1740. My Great Grandfather is General William George Wilcox of Baroda Army. I have just taken a DNA and find I am 20% India. Can anyone connect. Thanks

  3. Hello, I am searching for any links to my mother’s side of family, her father’s name is Patrick Joseph SHERBOURNE, mother was Gladys Simms. Mum was Dorothy Irene Stephen nee Sherbourne. I would love to hear from anybody who might have known them or even heard of them. Dorothy married Dennis Stephen from Burma in Feburary 1943. Please help… Thank you, Druscilla

  4. My great-great-grandfather John Norton was Artificer in the Bombay Mint. He married his first wife Anne Mackenzie on 18-June 1822. Anne Norton (nee Mackenzie) was buried on 20-October 1830.
    Her father was alleged to have been a Captain in the 72nd Regiment who was killed at the storming of Ahmadnagar. Anne’s mother died c.1826-1829 and her coffin was made by the carpenters of the Mint in Bombay. The problem is that we do not know the name of her father, or whether her mother was Scottish, Indian, or Anglo-Indian, as we have no name for her.

  5. Very interesting page. I would love to find out more about my Anglo-Indian family, Surname being Hawes. My great great grandparents were born in Calcutta and Bombay. My great grandma was born in 1935 in Karachi. I know they lived in a large house and had servants. And that is all i know, before moving to the UK. The last person to be born in Karachi was around 50 years ago.
